ALBANY, N.Y. – A Schenectady man will be sentenced to 10
years in State Prison to be followed by five years of post-release supervision
after pleading guilty to one felony count of Robbery in the 2nd degree Tuesday.
District Attorney David Soares announced that 30-year-old
David Taylor, of Schenectady, appeared before the Honorable Thomas Breslin in the
Supreme Court of Albany County for his involvement in a February incident at
the Best Western Motel on Wolf Road.
On February 12 at approximately 11:30 p.m., Taylor, along
with an unidentified individual who was not charged, entered the Colonie hotel and
directed two employees to get down on to the floor. During the incident, one of the employees was
grabbed by the neck and thrown to the floor.

been previously fired by management.
Taylor will return to court on August 13 for sentencing.
Anyone who may have additional information about the
unidentified co-defendant is being asked to contact the Albany County District
